IT’S LIKE YOU DON’T EXIST

‘Cleo the Wise Owl’ She doesn’t talk that much but she did mention that without bees, seeds & trees we are nothing.  Songs that that tell stories are fascinating me lately. I’m not sure why, although the plus with a song is – providing the melody is a good one – that a lyricist can

MUSHROOMS, GRAVESTONES, SPIDERS & BEES

‘Mushroom Quartet’ I don’t make a habit of hanging out in graveyards. The only reason I found myself in one on Saturday morning was because it was pouring with rain and the path through the graves of St Eanswythe Church was a shortcut from where my car was parked and the place I was heading

ZOOLON ON SALFORD CITY RADIO

I had a dream of the nightmare kind last night. I dreamed that I couldn’t play the piano anymore. Not good. I was still thinking about that when going through my messages earlier today. Then the day got better. Salford City Radio notified me that my song – the one that featured the unique Fifi Rong

THE SUN DON’T SHINE

‘A broken mirror left behind’ A couple of posts back I wrote some semi-lyrical words. I called them ‘The Secrets of the Blind’ I have been playing around with them hoping to get a new song together. I’m still playing around, adding a slightly different take on the evolution of the songs words and melody. If

MUSIC RELATED MERCHANDISE

This is going to sound like the unashamed marketing it is. So I’ll apologize right at the start. If you can hang in there, that would be good, and if nothing else you might want to check out my artwork on a whole host of  items via this LINK. I’ve often wondered what else I

THE SCREAM OF THE FOX

The Day After Madame La Guillotine Stopped By With some adaption I’m hoping I might have a new lyric for an acoustic song here. THE SCREAM OF THE FOX Fishing for rainbows Under dark clouds No antidote for dreaming In the daylight hours You’ve captured the bird song The sounds of the sea Captured the
